My surroundings and my favorite artists inspire me to create little boxes full of light, colors, and imagination. xx

Hi there!

I’m an artist/photographer based in Coastal Virginia. After 16 amazing years spent smitten with Los Angeles, I am back in my hometown with my husband, son, fur babies and beloved cameras in tow. I am settling in and ready for this new adventure.


Looking for some fine art prints to freshen up your space? Have a look around in my print shop. I have lots of images and sizes to choose from as well as framed pieces that are ready to hang. And I am always adding new work. Follow my Instagram @MyanSoffiaPhotography, @MyanSoffia or my Journal for my latest additions.

Need a portrait/lifestyle photographer or an illustrator/graphic designer for your next project? Sure thing! Check out my work in my portfolio and see if we are a match. :)


Portraiture & Lifestyle photography: 

I love connecting with people. My portraiture style is more casual and documentary rather than formal and posed. I am after those precious moments with your loved ones (furry ones included!). My aim is to capture slices of your life for you to cherish for years to come.

I also love fashion editorials and cafe/bar/restaurant photography. In LA I had the ever-inspiring landscape as a backdrop for editorials and have found Coastal VA has a similar beauty. I am ready to explore some woodlands and sand dunes and take advantage of our beautiful surroundings. Let's make some pretty images!

I also had the opportunity to take food images for a cafe in Silver Lake and kind of fell in love with setting up delicious images to entice patrons. I am always down for some yummy food portraits.

Fine art prints:

I have been offering my prints since 2008. I am so thankful my art has found homes in private collections around the world. I absolutely cherish my buyers. I like to imagine the viewer feels like they are standing where I was standing when I took the shot and we are sharing the same memory. I am most honored when someone describes my work as dreamy or leaves me a note as to why they chose a certain image and the memory it contains for them.

I am also especially grateful for the amazing opportunities that came my way as an artist in LA. My work can be found as set decor on several TV shows including Modern Family and The Rookie, seen in Lana Del Rey's record album Ultraviolence, in national and international magazines, books, hotels and has been sold through stores such as Urban Outfitters, West Elm and Target. 

Design & Illustration:

I was lucky enough to wield my design and illustration skills to create event flyers, logos, banners, postcards, graphics, posters, and invitations for my community in LA. I have just started accepting commissions again and am available for local & global projects.

I would love to work with you! For inquires feel free to reach out via the Contact page. Thanks for stopping by!
